    Doors on Derek Dooley near the Wicker.

    The top of the tunnel portal is just visible on your right on the Shalesmoor bound carriageway as you come to the Saville Street traffic lights.

    Does the wall and fake brick arches hold up Brunswick Road behind as it climbs up the hill over the tunnel ?

    Yep, Fiery Jack.... all the undergrowth above it appears to have been cleared which is bang over the top of green doors ..... so is it all connected n some way ?

    Doors on Derek Dooley near the Wicker.

    I've only just noticed that they seem to have cleared all the bushes. trees and weeds above the arches and doors, does anyone have a clue why ? Surely it's too steep to build on with the old tunnel below.

    And don't forget the old railway tunnel that is still in situ somewhere back behind those brick arches that leads down towards the Tesco car park. I don't believe that the doors are related to that but the tunnel certainly is still there.

    They are on the Saville Street link from Derek Dooley Way. https://www.google.com/maps/@53.3889958,-1.4621885,3a,75y,326.77h,94.47t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sw1R0_HWJLpUmJ0WVujUWTQ!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo2.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3Dw1R0_HWJLpUmJ0WVujUWTQ%26output%3Dthumbnail%26cb_client%3Dmaps_sv.tactile.gps%26thumb%3D2%26w%3D203%26h%3D100%26yaw%3D113.833664%26pitch%3D0%26thumbfov%3D100!7i13312!8i6656

    Java Lounge (ex) Holme lane

    A bag shop, a greengrocer and a florist before it became Java Lounge although it was empty for years in between. Is the footfall on that side of the junction heavy ? Most of the footfall around that area seem to come past Subway on to Bradfield Road or across towards the Hillsborough Tap and onwards over the bridge.
  12. It does have an irony though..... or was it a mischievous council worker employed to put the flag up and then take a photo so that it went viral ?

    Greggs Charging For Sitting in Shop

    With McDonalds I believe it is something to do with how the VAT is charged for either eating in or taking away, the price does remain the same.... Gregg's however appears to be totally different.

    Archaeological Dig behind Decathlon

    One good thing from this development is that the Porter Brook is opened up and made a focal point running through the area.

    Football Fans Parking Herries Road

    It does make me wonder how the local area can support this, enough shops on Hillsborough are already closed and we still have a couple of units empty on Kilner Way, so how does this make sense ? Added traffic to an already congested area add 20,000 plus around on a match day with very little in the way of car parking, but then again i suppose it will get passed as the council will receive good money from the rates charged.

    Kilner Way Retail Park thread

    I wonder effect what the proposed retail park opposite the Wednesday ground will have on Kilner Way. A couple of drive thru food/drink units... an Aldi/Lidl store and other units. Apart from the added traffic in the area, will it house more empty units ?

    Speed limit on Penistone Road

    Spot on, it's a busy road all along with traffic joining not just from road junctions but from factories, shops and car showrooms etc. Add in the cycle lanes and lack of pedestrian crossing points in some places and you have a cocktail for carnage if the speed was ever increased. I can't remember how many accidents I have seen over the years on the stretch from Rutland Road to Herries Road South.
  23. What a fantastic little project, I will ask around for fabrics, cottons etc. T-shirts with prints on the front make great cushion covers.... they are pretty quirky too.
